With the 2020 CAF Champions League scheduled to be played on a neutral ground instead of the traditional two-legged tie played home and away between the two finalists, Rwanda has also indicated interest in hosting the final.
Rwanda President Paul Kagame today, 16th February met with CAF President Ahmad, Vice President Constant Omari, African football legend Samuel Eto’o and FERWAFA president Jean Damascene Sekamana to discuss the possibility of hosting the CAF Champions League final in Kigali this May.
According to a medium – Yallakora, the five countries that have been earmarked for the continental spectacle before now are Egypt, Gabon, Sudan, Morocco and South Africa.
It would be recalled that the last final was marred by controversy over questionable officiating in the opening game between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca – while the second leg was abandoned.
South Africa has been tipped as the potential host outside Egypt.
